Michael Zajakowski Bravery comes in may stripes, and these incredible women wear their protest on their backs. This act is so simple but so effective and worthy of the world's attention.
In Iran, women's freedom of clothing is questioned, and acceptance remains uncertain. According to the Islamic Republic's law, women can only show their hair and body at home, in the presence of family. Yet, they bravely resist by removing hijabs and embracing a liberated way of dressing. Through my photography, I capture their fight for rights, starting with the right to choose their clothing. This battle unfolds daily in major cities, a fight for women's freedom and against inequality. I walk alongside them, documenting their journey.
